Thursday, September 30, 2021, Noon - 2:0 pm
Presenter: Dr. Amy Lilienfeld, President and Founder, Circle of Illumination Science Education.
When a suggestion was made to a 3rd grade teacher in Minneapolis to illustrate calculations of elapsed time using how day length changes during the Earth’s annual revolution around the sun she objected by saying “but that’s science!”. Because math, however, is an integral part of many subjects in science teaching them together at the elementary school level helps provide a solid foundation for middle school. In this webinar participants will see many illustrations of how science can be integrated more explicitly with math using data accessed from the web to more effectively engage and motivate students. Reference to specific academic standards in both science and math will be made.
